  3. Why Fox News Cut Away from Kayleigh McEnany’s Presser on Voter Fraud Allegations

    https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2020/11/09/why-fox-news-cut-away-from-kayleigh-mcenanys-presser-on-voter-fraud-n2579779

    “Are you kidding me? Did Fox News really just do that to White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany? Host Neil Cavuto cut away from her presser about voter fraud and the effort to count every legal vote in this election. That apparently was triggering or not appropriate for Mr. Cavuto. He cut away. This comes after the network was first to call Arizona for Joe Biden, who by the way, hasn’t won the state yet. ”

    “It’s close there. And it could be flipped by Trump. Yes, MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki made that point, which caused host Rachel Maddow to panic. A Democrat runs Fox News’ polling and election desk operation. And they said there’s no way Trump can win. Well, he can. They’re wrong. The votes haven’t been counted, and when MSNBC or CNN hasn’t called it yet, you know that’s a red flag.”

    “How Pennsylvania Democrats Deliberately Stoked 2020 Election Chaos

    The chaos we’re witnessing was the plan all along, carefully orchestrated by Pennsylvania Democrats, including the governor, party activists, and the state Supreme Court. (Also run by Dems)”

    “I can’t tell you how many texts I’ve received this week from friends and acquaintances across the country asking—usually in all-caps and peppered with profanity—what is going on in Pennsylvania? As a native Philadelphian, and from my current vantage in politically coveted Bucks County, I can see why Americans are demanding answers.

    Ballots can be counted up to three days after Election Day? Mailed ballots with no postmark still qualify? Unsupervised drop boxes scattered across cities are entrusted to secure tens of thousands of votes?

    Sadly, it’s all true. None of these practices inspires confidence that the standard of “one person, one vote” is being upheld. Nor were these practices valid in any prior general election in Pennsylvania.

    Scratching your head as to why we chose the most consequential election in our lifetimes to run an experiment? Here’s what I’ve told my friends: the experiment was a wild success—once you understand that the chaos we’re witnessing was the plan all along, carefully orchestrated by Pennsylvania Democrats, including the governor, party activists, and the state Supreme Court. Here’s how it happened.

    In Pennsylvania, Democrat Gov. Tom Wolf used the COVID-19 pandemic as cover for hurrying through new voting rules that bypassed reasonable deadlines or restrictions. The result? Many voters now have deep suspicion about wide-scale voter fraud in Philadelphia.

    Republicans and Democrats have long understood the problems with mass mail-in ballots. The usual stages of ballot security are lost: unlike absentee ballots, some people are claiming they received unsolicited mail-in ballot applications, a practice Pennsylvania does not allow. Could it be ballot applications were illegally sent or is it simply that voters forgot they signed up to get them?”

    “Worse, it’s impossible to ensure the ballot is filled out by the voter or with her approval. And when the ballot is submitted, the chain of custody observing that ballot is broken. It’s a recipe for contested election results.”

    ———–

    We forgot nothing. Between my wife, myself, and my daughter we received over 20 such ballot apps. We didn’t request any of them. That’s illegal. Fraud is rampant here, thanks to Democrats.

    “New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that while it is “good news” that Pfizer has had a recent breakthrough in its coronavirus vaccine clinical trial, he believes it is “bad news” that the Trump administration will get to plan the distribution.

    In an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Monday, Cuomo said he has spoken to other governors about how they can alter or even block Trump’s plan so that President-elect Joe Biden could do it instead.

    “Well, it’s good news, bad news, George,” Cuomo said. “The good news is the Pfizer tests look good and we’ll have a vaccine shortly. The bad news is it’s about two months before Joe Biden takes over, and that means this administration is going to be implementing a vaccine plan.”

    “The Media Should Not Have ‘Called’ This Election”

    “Joe Biden has made it clear that he will do his best to “unify” the country following an election in which more than 71 million Americans – nearly half the electorate – voted for Donald Trump. It is an admirable goal. But any chance of that happening depends on the American people having confidence that the election outcome resulted from a fair and honest process. Though never perfect, our electoral system has generally instilled confidence for the past 231 years, which is why it has worked so well.

    Under the contentious circumstances of this election, the traditional media’s decision to declare a victor before the official process had run its course has diminished the confidence of Trump voters in the announced result. Even if the declaration of a Biden victory is found to be accurate, the call was premature, and it will make the effort to unify our nation far more difficult.

    Like millions of voters from both sides of the political aisle, I’m sensitive to the need for a definitive election outcome, untainted by irregularities or allegations of fraud. Even with razor-thin margins separating the two candidates in key states, we should be able to arrive at a final result that both sides can accept.

    President Trump is contesting the reported results in those states where the race is close, and the conduct of election officials and the processes used appear suspicious. He is clearly within his rights to contest the results; his supporters generally want him to do so. Allowing the legal process to run its course is the only way to foster the unity Biden seeks.

    Unity is much less likely, however, when the media simply declares a winner before the matter is resolved. In 2012, many Republicans felt disappointed when Mitt Romney lost to President Obama. Very few felt cheated. That will not be the case in 2020 if the current president’s supporters believe that the media preempted the official process so as to disparage or prevent a full investigation of the president’s claims.

    The New York Times exacerbated this problem when it announced in an odd Election Day tweet, later withdrawn, that “the role of declaring the winner of a presidential election in the U.S. falls to the news media.” Of course, it does not. That responsibility falls on Congress. But that tweet told the president’s supporters all they needed to know about the media’s intent. “

    “James O’Keefe Releases Video Exposing Ballot Destruction in Pennsylvania, Immediately Gets Censored by Twitter

    Big Tech does not want this exposed.”

    “Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe has been censored again by Twitter shortly after releasing a video of a whistleblower attesting to voter irregularities in Pennsylvania. The video can still be accessed on Facebook at the present time.

    The video pertains to spoiled ballots being handled in an unlawful manner with their destruction by Pennsylvania elections workers against protocol. Pennsylvania Board of Elections Director Tom Freitag confirmed in the video that the law was not followed.”

    —–

    “Big League Politics has reported on the censorship that O’Keefe is receiving for merely exposing abnormalities with regards to the election process:

    Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe was recently locked out of his Twitter account for a nine-month-old tweet that supposedly violated a copyright shortly after he uncovered a Democrat ballot harvesting scheme operating out of Minneapolis, Minn. tied to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

    The revelations demonstrated how the Somali-dominated areas of Minneapolis are rife with fraud, showing how importing the third world can negatively impact electoral integrity in the U.S.

    O’Keefe was temporarily locked out of his account and unable to promote the ballot harvesting story for a short period. However, he eventually had functionality restore to his Twitter account. He believes the censorship is proving what a massive impact he is having in exposing the globalist establishment.

    “They couldn’t even provide proof of a legitimate reason and point to the tweet in question!” O’Keefe wrote in a Tweet after returning to the social media platform.

    “Some “copyright violation” and they wouldn’t even show the tweet in question,” he continued.

    “[Project Veritas] has the tech overlords rattled…we’re winning,” O’Keefe added…

    Big Tech is heavily invested in the Democrat vote steal against President Trump. These powerful globalist interests hope to pull off their anti-Trump color revolution in broad daylight and rape U.S. democracy in the process.”

    “Lawsuit: Detroit Election Worker was Told to Backdate Mail-in Ballots by City Officials”

    “A new election lawsuit contains many explosive claims about potential electoral fraud in Detroit, including allegations from one city worker that she was asked to backdate ballots so they could be unlawfully processed and included in the overall vote total.

    The Detroit official, named in the lawsuit as Jessy Jacob, issued a sworn affidavit about what they experienced during the helter skelter that occurred in the battleground state on election day.

    “I processed absentee ballot packages to be sent to voters while I worked at the election headquarters in September 2020 along with 70-80 other poll workers. I was instructed by my supervisor to adjust the mailing date of these absentee ballot packages to be dated earlier than they were actually sent. The supervisor was making announcements for all workers to engage in this practice,” Jacob stated in the deposition.

    “I directly observed, on a daily basis, City of Detroit election workers and employees coaching and trying to coach voters to vote for Joe Biden and the Democrat party. I witnessed these workers and employees encouraging voters to do a straight Democrat ballot. I witnessed these election workers and employees going over to the voting booths with voters in order to watch them vote and coach them for whom to vote,” Jacob continued.

    “I observed a large number of people who came to the satellite location to vote in-person, but they had already applied for an absentee ballot. These people were allowed to vote in-person and were not required to return the mailed absentee ballot or sign an affidavit that the voter lost the mailed absentee ballot,” Jacob added.

    So what do we know about Dominion?

    “Speaker Pelosi and Senator Feinstein from California both have an interest in these machines so it is no surprise they are being promoted around the US. One Board member of Dominion was Obama’s Ambassador to the UE and now is on the Board of WarnerMedia and CNN:

    An executive board member of Staple Street Capital, William Earl Kennard, is a former ambassador to the EU who was appointed to that position by former President Barack Obama. In 2018, Dominion announced it had been acquired by its management team and Staple Street Capital. On November 6, Deadline reported that Kennard was named to the board of WarnerMedia parent AT&T, which owns CNN.

    South Carolina implemented machines right before the South Carolina Democrat primary where Biden won his first primary ever after multiple attempts at the Presidency. A local ABC news channel reported in February 2020 on the transition to the Dominion voting machines:

    But instead of choosing simple, hand-marked paper ballots that are most resistant to tampering because paper cannot be hacked, many are opting for pricier technology that computer security experts consider almost as risky as earlier discredited electronic systems…

    …The most pricey solution available, they are at least twice as expensive as the hand-marked paper ballot option. They have been vigorously promoted by the three voting equipment vendors that control 88 percent of the U.S. market.”

  16. What proof did y’all show when you went to vote? I’ve heard that in some of these states, they only had to provide the minimum, i.e. in NC – name and address; Illinois – name and address; Maryland – only your name; Virginia – only your name, though you may be asked if you have ID, but don’t have to actually show it; NM – only your name and sign in; Pa – only your name and sign in; Mass. – name and address (in this state you need three forms of ID and $60 to register a car). Others requiring ID: NH – photo ID; Del. – photo ID; Fla – photo ID; Tx – photo ID.

  20. Photo ID is required here, however, almost everyone has one since the Health Card is a photo ID. Elections Canada uses our tax returns to update voter rolls every year. Elections Canada (or prov or municipal equivalent) sends a voter card in the mail and you take that with ID. They cross your name off the roll once you receive the ballot. There’s a registration process if you don’t file a tax return but again nearly everyone does since its the only way to access certain income tested benefits such as child tax benefits and old age security. A change of address can be done on voting day — you just need a piece of mail with your name on it — a normally a utilities bill or a lease will work too.

    These are all paper ballots and other traced from the time they leave the printers to the district election office to the polling station and back. The number of votes must correspond with the number of missing ballots. Its almost impossible to cheat. All counting is done by hand and since we only vote for one thing each time; it doesn’t take long.

    From what I understand, the American system also tracks ballots and has even more safeguards including bar codes. And they do ensure you are on an update voters roll–a Florida requested a ballot for his dead wife and was promptly arrested. Apparently this has happened before as people will claim their recently deceased relative wanted them to vote — and they are easily caught before they even vote. Also in Florida, the Governor had trouble voting since his address didn’t match — someone sent in a change of address for his a joke. If Florida has safeguards in place I’m pretty sure the other 49 states do too.

    Stargazer got a ballot in the mail even though he moved two years ago and was expecting his WA ballot any day at home in Seattle. We shredded it but think of all the other mysterious ballots that turned up.

    The college student who lives with us insisted everyone should be able to vote. I asked him why he thought someone without an ID should be able to vote. “Because it’s so hard to get an ID.”

    “You go to the DMV and prove you live here.”

    “Not everyone has that kind of money.”

    I looked at him, long and hard–a poli-sci major. “If you cannot figure out how to get an ID, I don’t think you know enough to vote responsibly. It’s the basic component of being a citizen.”

    He squirmed.

  22. It really is time for Trump to concede. I don’t expect a speech but his aides should start moving out and preparing for a new admin.

    Currently the only state in recount range is Georgia and it doesn’t matter for the electoral college. All others are at least 0.5% away. Take away the close states and Biden still wins. The polls were right — I predicted 308 3 months ago and last week I predicted a range from 279 to 305. Biden ran a steady boring campaign and it worked. Then again, a Trump re-election would always be tough — the Democratic leadership isn’t too bright but they weren’t going to be surprised twice. Trumps approval ratings rarely were above 50% and thats never a good sign for reelection.

    The 40,000 “illegal” vote accusation was thrown out a week before the election already. The judge stated there was no evidence. Accredited poll watchers were allowed to watch– armed Trump supporter mobs were not. The electronic vote accusation is similar to a left wing conspiracy in 2004. This election featured massive turnout and an excellent ground game by both sides which increased the vote count — so yes same day registration put it over 100%. Every election there are tales of found ballots — in fact I’ve seen the same video of cops pulling out garbage bags for two or three elections. The tale of some one driving to Canada with boxes of ballots — anyone in Detroit knows the border is closed. Besides, why not burn them at home and roast some marsh mellows. Right now, Trump wants you to believe he’s the victim of a massive voter fraud by the Democrats yet the Democrats didn’t do the same to Collins or McConnell (who they detest more)?

    Urban polls always have longer voting lines and the Biden campaign made excellent use of advance polls and mail in ballots. This decreased the line ups in urban centers which encouraged more same day voting thereby increasing the turnout. It also “banked” votes. This is normal for most campaigns — you get out your vote over several days — this makes better use of your volunteers who can now help over several days and when election day comes they have less voters to corral and bring to the polls. The failure of the Trump campaign to take advantage of spreading out the vote and making better use of their volunteers may have contributed to their defeat. It was an irrational error on their part.

    Clinton conceded even when the vote was closer in Wisconsin, Penn, and Michigan. Trump needs to put on his big boy pants and go to Mar a Lago.

    Big Tech didn’t rig a thing. Facebook is notorious for being on the fence and Zuckerburg would rather just collect data and money then regulate. Many on the left consider him a friend of Trump. Twitter enabled Trump and gave him an audience — its only been the last month they have started to exert control. They see the writing on the wall and are now seeking to preserve the “brand” and keep value for the shareholders — capitalism in action.

    It takes more than a generation to wipe out the moral foundations of two centuries, And if it doesn’t how strong was Christianity? I’ve read Hitchens et al; they’re great writers but hardly enough to bring down morality.

    Today’s Democrats; FDR was far more left wing than the current leadership. Sanders won’t join the party and he’s to the right of FDR. AOC is not representative of the party.

    I wonder how he thinks the world viewed the US under Trump; at first it was a joke, then a farce and finally a tragedy. Having Biden as president will actually restore the world’s faith in the American idea,

    Trump is/was corrupt. I’m not sure where this writer was looking but there are entire websites dedicated to monitoring how much taxpayer money was spent at his golf resorts every time he golfed. Foreign diplomats deliberately stayed at his hotel to be on his good side. The Saudis once rented an entire floor but didn’t use it. Pence once drove across Ireland so the Trump Corp could bill the US gov’t. Ivanka Trump was the beneficiary of Chinese patents. etc etc

    The historical analogy is all wrong. The Antifa model their movement after the Spartacist and Communist of post WW1 Berlin. They had pitched battles in the street with the Freikorps (right wing militia types) in the 1920s and in the early 1930s they fought the Nazis in street battles. So yes the original antifa were street thugs but they were fighting right wing thugs and later Nazis.

    Anyone can rewrite Niemoller’s poem but I think the original — first they came for the Communists, the labour unions, the Jews — still has relevance today although I would add the refugees and migrants. Interesting fact about Niemoller; he originally supported the right wing thugs, the Friekorps, and later, albeit in the beginning, the Nazis. He supported them because he thought they would revive Germany (make it great again) and oppose socialism. Interesting parallels — perhaps pastors supporting Trump should look to Niemoller and the era of the Weimar Republic and reconsider their current ideas.

    Its the pastor references to Weimar Germany which motivated me to comment. There are historical parallels — a discredited republic, rise of the personality, right wing populism, failure to follow democratic norms, demonizing opponents, etc.

  25. Mumsee — I actually agree, but I speak from the vantage point of a Canadian who lives in a country where everyone has a health card. However, even without a health card, it shouldn’t be too difficult. Curious which photo IDs are acceptable?

    Then again speaking form the vantage point of a Canadian where a permanent voting list is kept and updated via tax returns, I also wonder why registration is so difficult in the US. Require photo ID but make registration easier. Actually that’s a fair compromise if you make registration easy say tax records or driver’s license then it would be reasonable to ask for an ID.

  26. Hrw: driver’s license, military ID, states can provide a photo ID if you don’t have anything else. Just takes filling out the application, social security number (never to be used for identification purposes), proof of citizenship and residency of your state (a letter to your address with your name), a thumbprint, a small fee, they take the pic.
